TO MY VALENTINE

VALENTINE'S DAY WILL SOON BE HERE!...LOVE IS IN THE AIR! I SENT JIMMY 7 VALENTINE CARDS, AND HE LOVED THEM AND HAS BEEN SLEEPING WITH THEM UNDER HIS PILLOW!....SOME ARE ROMANTIC CARDS, SOME ARE FUNNY . I ESPECIALLY LIKE THE ONE WITH THE BABY BEAR SITTING ON THE BIG BEAR'S HEAD..IT SAYS  "HI DADDY!"...I WROTE, "THAT'S JUST WHERE I'D LIKE TO STAY...ON TOP OF YOUR HEAD..IT'S WARM AND COMFORTABLE AND SAFE UP THERE!"  TODAY I SANG FOR OVER AN HOUR!....I JUST LOVE TO SING!  I LIKE TO BECOME PART OF THE MUSIC AND WORDS....IT'S HARD TO EXPLAIN.  I DON'T EVEN CARE WHAT PEOPLE THINK.  IT IS UNEXPLAINABLE, THE WAY I FEEL WITH SONGS AND MUSIC..THEY ARE MY FRIENDS AND I AM PART OF IT. THE NOTES...THE TUNES..YOU BECOME PART OF IT!...YOU ARE NEVER ALONE OR LONELY WHEN YOU HAVE MUSIC! I DO WANT TO MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY, TOO, WITH MY WORDS.  I HAVE MADE 10 TAPES SINCE JIMMY IS GONE.  I PLAY MY RECORDINGS FOR HIM OVER THE PHONE.  JIMMY WILL PUT ME ON CD'S WHEN HE COMES HOME. HE WANTS TO GET ME OUT IN THE PUBLIC WHEN HE COMES HOME  E.G. LOUNGE SINGING. HE HAS ALREADY PUT ME IN FRONT OF SENIOR CITIZEN GROUPS TO SING, AND EVERYONE IS PLEASED WITH ME! HE IS AMAZED AT MY VOICE.  HE SAYS I MAKE A GOOD BALLAD SINGER. I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT. IT SUDDENLY EMERGED FROM ME...IT STARTED A FEW MONTHS BEFORE I KNEW JIMMY WAS LEAVING. LIKE A LITTLE BIRD..HE SAYS I HAVE AN ANGELS VOICE.....I STARTED SINGING AND SINGING....AND I JUST COULDN'T STOP...I KNEW HE WAS GOING TO PRISON, AND SONGS BECAME MY FRIEND. BUT NOW, MY VOICE HAS CHANGED AND I'M SINGING DEEPER..HE NOTICED IT ON THE PHONE. MY VOICE IS IMPROVING. MY VOICE IS MUCH STRONGER. I SING EVERY DAY, AND ENJOY SINGING INTO A MICROPHONE...MY NOTES GO HIGH, AND I CAN GO LOW..THE BEST PART IS, I CAN HOLD A NOTE!  I JUST LIKE MAKING PEOPLE HAPPY, AND IT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD!...JIMMY SET EVERYTHING UP HERE BEFORE HE LEFT.....MICROPHONES, SPEAKERS, HEADPHONES. IT'S JUST LIKE A RECORDING STUDIO.  HE DID IT ALL FOR ME, SO I WOULDNT BE LONELY. TODAY I SANG ONE OF JIMMY'S FAVORITES, AND ONE OF MY BEST SONGS........HE NEARLY CRIES EVERYTIME I SING IT!..."LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING"......JIMMY SENT ME 3 MORE PIX FROM PRISON..HE LOOKS SO GOOD AND THINNER. HE ALSO SENT ME A HOMEMADE CARD AND A LOVE LETTER.  LAST YEAR HE GAVE ME A BEAUTIFUL DIAMOND HEART..I AM WEARING IT NOW...I LOVE MY JIMMY SO VERY MUCH!

We do some strange things when we are heart sick. After my five weeks at Ground Zero I started writing poetry. I've now had some published and find that it just keeps coming out of me. I don't know why. Not bad for a 50+ guy with lousy high school english grades. Enjoy your new found talent and use it to make your Jimmy happy. My Regards, Bill.
